“A refreshing Mexican rice drink that's easy to make. I don't know if this version is traditional but I did have something similar at a very authentic Mexican restaurant. Either way, it's still delicious!”

All I had was Jasmine rice, which is a long grain. 1. Did a quick rinse of the rice, because I've read its best to rinse your imported rice due to the difference in handling procedures (i.e. use of talc to give rice a whiter look) at the foreign company vs US companies 2. Blended on High (my blender says Liquefy) for 1 minute 3. Used full coconut milk vs light, which some say light is just full diluted with water 4. I wasn't around to whisk occasionally, but let it sit unattended for the full 3hrs 5. Used coconut sugar, which is just as sweet but much lower glycemic index. 6. I didn't bother transferring rice from blender to a bowl, but later blender clean up would have been easier vs. dealing with the settled rice in the bottom of the blender My wife normally can't stand horchata, but she wanted seconds of this one! Great recipe. Thanks!
